Default Pilot killing taxes?

Did you guys take it in the shorts this year as well? Lost 18k in write offs. Ended up paying 60k to Uncle Sam.

Lost 40k in writeoffs, paid 15,000 less in taxes. Very happy! New brackets more than offset deductions.

I ended up getting back about 9000 less than I would have with the old system. There is no way I made 9000 more in my paychecks this year. So yeah, I'm not happy with the loss of all those deductions.

It just depends on where you live. “Blue” states are taking it in the shorts. If you live in a “Red” state, you’re winning on your taxes...but losing in life.



Take it easy. I’m just joking.

Yeah your accountant can predict your taxes and tell you how much to withhold.

It's actually financially not bad to sit on that cash and earn interest for the year, as long as you're disciplined enough to know how big a check you're going to have to write in Apr, and can save up for it. I'd be perfectly happy with a $50k interest free loan from uncle, just wouldn't trust my wife with it...
